Project Information

This is my first dovetail infill plane. I know it isn't a sauer-Steiner but it turned out absolutely beautiful. The materials are 1018 cold rolled steel sole, brass sides, brass lever cap, brass lever cap screw knob, stainless steel lever cap screw, wenge wood, and 01 tool steel blade. This project took around 35 hours to complete. I don't have a milling machine so the metal work is done using a porta-bander, 2×48" belt grinder, and files. It was a challenging project but I loved the process and am excited to make another one. As always all comments are welcome, positive or negative.

Nicely done! It's a sharp-looking plane. What wood did you use for the infill?

Fine looking infill. More so being a first effort. Sounds like you are hooked a little bit.

Looking at all the planes lately reminded me of my buddy Keith.

This is a really nice one too.

Keith is an exceptional woodworker, I wish he still came around.
